    decided to come out of my reviewing hiatus for this onehaving been a paramedic in a busy system for many years i can say that i am usually not a fan of ems related books largely because they either overdo the dramatic aspects to the point it becomes unrealistic or they have to explain so many things to the layperson that someone who already knows the job has a lot to skip through before getting to the good stuffthis book does ne

    It's funny how clueless we can be when it comes to the way other countries do things that we in the first world take for granted I thought all a

    An interesting and at times affecting read about pre hospital care across continents but it carries the vibe of a Contiki coach tour – by the time Gilmour scraped the surface of a culture or country we were carted off to the next

    I had the pleasure of meeting Benjamin Gilmour although briefly at a booth at the EMS World Expo 2013 in Las Vegas I bought his book and he signed it for me Sadly I did not get to attend the viewing of his film Paramedico that was also shown one evening during this conference I will purchase it online soonTold in non linear multiple chapters each showcasing a particular location this book was very interesting in the different ways EMS is

    I am not going to lie I had really high hopes for this book as it has been touted to me as the best paramedic related novel you'll read and I'm sure for many people that is the case Unfortunately I don't share the same opinionThe writing style isn't exactly flowing and I find that makes it hard to immerse yourself in the situation the author is describing It is interesting enough to be read once but probably never again

‘As you read this than a hundred thousand ambulance medics across the planet are responding to emergencies They are scrambling under crashed cars carrying the sick down flights of stairs resuscitating near dead husbands at the feet of hysterical wives and stemming the blood flow of gunshot victims in seedy back alleys A good number too are just as. It s funny how clueless we can be when it comes to the way other countries do things that we in the first world take for granted I thought all ambulance services were basically the same with only tiny differences between adoption of new drugs or new techniues perhaps a doctor on this one but not on that one But I guarantee I will never see ambulances used to transport live goats and butchered meat to the poor in Australia like they do in Pakistan home to the world s largest private ambulance serviceTime and time again my eyes were opened reading Paramedico From South Africa where anything but a five minute scene time is a fail no matter what the injury and closely monitored by stony faced supervisors with stopwatches to Macedonia where an elderly dehydrated and weak patient can be left at home on a drip with instructions on how to remove his own cannula to Mexico where an elderly patient can break every bone in her body after being hit by a high speed car but gets no pain relief but does get a ride to hospital filled with delays and jarring bumpsAmbulance drivers in London who spend their work days transporting wealthy people to doctor s appointments Venetian paramedics who can t give CPR because it just doesn t work on a little boat A Pakistani ED that miraculously clears in only a few hours after nineteen dead and fifty injured in a gruesome suicide bomb attackAnd the different work ethics Honestly they re like something from a grim dark comedy drinking strong spirits on the job strapping a colleague to a stretcher and dousing her in cold water for her birthday jumping on each other in a huge pile or selling gory photos to journalists at the same time as some working 48 hour shifts or dealing with ten or twenty gunshot murders in a shift That s TEN or TWENTY Gunshot murders Per shiftEuipment is hard to come by in many countries some crews have to carefully ration their disposable latex gloves many don t have drugs not even the drugs that revert a cardiac arrestBut perhaps my favourite eye opener was how various control centres around the world treat their patients In Macedonia call takers abuse callers for not being sick or injured enough and slam the phones down In Pakistan numbers are barred after a hoax call A world away from the every caller wins an ambulance of AustraliaIf you like having your eyes opened if you like learning about how tough others have it without actually having to experience it then this is a must read The only bad thing I have to say is that the section on Pakistan went on for too long but there was an awful lot to tell there so I get how that can happen Can We Live 150 Years? in seedy back alleys A good number too are just as.

Paramedico

Likely to be raising an eyebrow at some ridiculous trivial complaint their patient has considered life threatening enough to call them for’ Paramedico is a heart stopping white knuckle ride about a paramedic at work in an ambulance attending emergencies in far flung places such as England Iceland Macedonia Mexico Pakistan The Philippines South Af. I am not going to lie I had really high hopes for this book as it has been touted to me as the best paramedic related novel you ll read and I m sure for many people that is the case Unfortunately I don t share the same opinionThe writing style isn t exactly flowing and I find that makes it hard to immerse yourself in the situation the author is describing It is interesting enough to be read once but probably never again and I would not recommend it to my friends I am an operational paramedic working in rural Australia and I found the comparison between countries and their respective Ambulance Services interesting if not a little confronting If anything this book will make you grateful that you live in a country with appropriately government funded pre hospital health care if you happen to be lucky enough to do so The documentary that ties to the book but has no actual tangible connections to it is interesting enough but again watch it once and be confronted how it is in other countries and then probably never watch it again Suffering and no suffering is a heart stopping white knuckle ride about a paramedic at work Can We Live 150 Years? in an ambulance attending emergencies The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears in far flung places such as England Iceland Macedonia Mexico Pakistan The Philippines South Af.

Rica and Thailand – at the time of the 2004 tsunami This is also a brilliantly written collection of wild tales of wild people whose lives are so different from our own that it’s hard to believe they really exist Gilmour is able to make us stop and think not only of how to live a life but how precious life is and how important it is to protect i. So enjoyed reading Benjamin s adventures a truly Goodread
